Dead Woman Crossing

Weatherford, Oklahoma

While looking on Google Maps to see where to go next I saw this displayed and went to check it out.
It was a nice leisurely drive on old Route 66 to get there.
The old two-lane highway taken by those from Oklahoma to California during the depression in hopes for a new and better life after losing everything during the dust storms.

Once there I found no signs.  I suspect because of the name they get stolen and thus the highway department has given up.  Curious as to why the name I did some research only to find a sad story.
You can read it here if you wish.

oh that is sad. I was on a part of route 66 many years ago but I can't remember where, I think I have written about it in a journal and have a photo in an album.
